The Flute Book
Teachers and flutists at all levels will welcome the third edition of Nancy Toff's unique one-stop guide to the flute and its music. Organized into four main parts (The Instrument, Performance, The Music, and Repertoire Catalog) the book begins with a description of the instrument and its construction, offers information on choosing and caring for a flute, sketches a history of the flute, and discusses differences between members of the flute family. In the Performance section, readers learn about breathing, tone, vibrato, articulation, technique, style, performing, and recording. In the extensive analysis of flute literature that follows, Toff places individual pieces in historical context. The book ends with a comprehensive catalog of solo and chamber repertoire, and includes appendices with fingering charts as well as lists of current flute manufacturers, repair shops, sources for flute music, books, flute clubs and related organizations worldwide. Soft cover, 538 pages, including Notes, Bibliography and Index.
